First off, I'd like to point out that "n e body" is actually one more keystroke than the correct spelling (anybody) thus defeating the intended purpose of the abbreviation.

To answer your question though, generally, 2" susp (this means torsion bars and shackles/addaleaf) or 2" body lift usually gives enough lift to fit 31x10.5 on stock wheels. If you need instructions for how to actually crank the torsion bars, there's a couple of how-to threads in the DIY section.
